On the 9th of May, Ausdroid and Vodafone offered you, our readers, the opportunity to win a brand-new HTC One by entering a photography competition. The brief? Show us three photos taken on your current smartphone camera that best demonstrate situations where the HTC One, with its ultrapixel camera, would be able to improve the shot, taking account of lightning, composition and framing.
We received a staggering number of entries, and it has taken us many hours to sift through all of your photos to choose a winner. Let me assure you, this was no easy choice. There were many photos that we thought demonstrated great artistic merit, and aptly demonstrated situations where the HTC One would quite likely take a better quality photo in the same circumstances.
Ausdroid’s editors have reviewed the photos and consulted with Vodafone to determine the winning entry, and we’re pleased to announce that the winner is none other than Tiffany Yuan. You can see Tiffany’s winning entries, with her commentary on each, below:
Of her photos, and photography in general, Tiffany said:
Old-school film photography’s been a real hobby of mine for a while, but sometimes all you have is your phone! I also really like taking photos at night and around sunset, which don’t traditionally take well on phones, but it’s all you have on you when you’re jogging.
Tiffany’s photos were taken on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, a device which some of our team quite enjoyed, but on one point we all agree — it has a fairly average camera. Despite this, these photos are pretty good, and we’d love to see what they would look like if taken on an HTC One.
We’d like to congratulate Tiffany on winning this competition. To everyone else that entered, thank you — your enthusiasm for our competitions means only one thing. Simple — we’re going to have to do far more of these!
Stay tuned for our next competition, and thanks for reading Ausdroid.
